Top Yokohama BluEarth Winter V905 Review

Given 98% while driving a Mazda 626 (195/60 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
Great winter tyres, on dry these Yokohamas are like summer tyres, grip is excellent. On wet there is no problem, even a few cm of water was not a big deal but that was not with highway speed, up to 80kmph. Snow traction is great, no problem in deep snow but I had only one trip on snow in town so it is hard to say how good they are on snow.
They are comfortable, but should be better. Will buy again definitelly.
Thread pattern is similar to Continental, but I like this one more :D.

Given 93% while driving a Subaru Impreza WRX STI (245/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 7,000 spirited miles
Hands down the best performing tyre in snow and ice I've ever used. On snow they are genuinely like a summer tyre in the wet. There is a very steep hill leading into my village and I can stop on the steepest point in deep snow and pull away again without spinning a wheel. Breaking on the snow and ice is just as good. Steering is millimetre perfect also. Used these tyres for two winters now and put around 7k miles on them and they are barely worn at all. They are also fantastic on cold and wet roads standing water is of no concern. My only complaint about them is that they feel quite unstable at 'high' speed in the dry and feel a bit floaty. However despite this they have handled any emergency manoeuvres with ease and have never let the car get out of control. 100% will buy again without a seconds hesitation.

Great hold on both dry and wet road too good and in the snow it makes some noise

Trying to pick the very best all season tyre? Watch this!
Given 89% while driving a MINI Clubman (215/40 R18) on for 1,000 average miles
I have a fairly long commute, and Scottish morning icy conditions this time of year aren’t great for summer rubber. After spending way too much time deciding which winter tyres to fit my mini with ended up going for the Yokohamas hoping they would hit the sweet spot in terms of price/quality tradeoff. So far I’ve done about a thousand motorway and b-road miles. Very happy with it. It is way better than the stock mini summer tyres in everything but dry grip (which you would expect). But even there the difference is smaller than I expected. Happy so far.

Given 94% while driving a Ford Fiesta 2010 1.4 tdci (195/50 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 3,500 average miles
Tried them on snowy and icy roads on mountain, they were excellent even in a really steep climb roads, driven them every day on dry and on rain, tyres were excellent. Even on mountain roads with many twists and tight curves, taking them with some speed they showed excellent, without any slips. The handling is very good in every condition, braking is really nice and smooth. Only downside is that they are a bit louder on highways than the others. Strongly recommending them.

Given 93% while driving a Subaru Legacy (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
I was driving with these tires for 3 seasons already (in Lithuania). I liked them. The response on wet and dry is really good. On icy and snowy roads one cannot drive like on wet, it's obvious :) For that you have to choose at least soft compound tyres, or better spiked. They are pretty soft, which comes as a better comfort on bumpy roads. But what impressed me the most, is the wearing degree. After 20000 miles (3 winters) they are still around 6mm.
